Nov 13, 2023 – What are You Measuring With? | Daily Thoughts

More daily thoughts while I get my morning sunlight.

I was thinking about how the results we get depend on how we measure. I guess this is a life-expression of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.

When the sun rises earlier and sets earlier because we changed our clocks, did anything really change? No, it’s our measurement that changed. Now the sun rises at 7:30. 2 weeks ago it rose at 8:30. But nothing about Earth’s orbit changed, we just set our clocks back a bit.

As we try to achieve our goals it is critical to figure out what we are measuring with. I see so many people who are measuring the wrong things and end up disappointed with their success.
